Walked up the the cathedral... got lost a couple of times, entered a construction zone but eventually arrived. Many old and interesting streets. I enjoy photography but I was there on business and didn't bring my camera. The view is wonderful..

I am so happy we found this hill. What a great view. It opened up Lyon for me. Helped me to fall in love with this city. Also, public bathrooms are here, so there is that. We ended up enjoying this view and then headed southwest to the Romain ruins and then walked down the hill via the public streets.... More

Starting in old town Lyon, by way of the Montee de Chazeaux, this is a gorgeous, tree lined hike up to the Basilica. I highly recommend it! But it can be strenuous, but rewarding.

Great walk through the old town. Once up on the hill the views over Lyon are stunning. If you're not good with climbing stairs, use the funiculaire with a regular metro ticket.

The view is simply breath-taking - whole Lyon panorama and on sunny day you will see distant, majestic Alpes. Especially recomended on sunset - the mountans turn pink and look like from other world. You can take a nice walk around and see the old and new buildings and of course the basilique which is a separate, great attraction of... More

It is well worth to take this walk up on the hill to look at the view. Best is sunrise or sunset. A run can also be recommended.

Either walk up the Fourviere Hill or take the funicular up. Magnificent view over Lyon. Try to get up there between 4 and 5pm if you are there during winter for the stunning sunset.
